Re: request: removal of Alan Paller from the CEB

I too would like to thank Alan for all the things he has done for this 
effort and for the security community in general. The education he has 
provided, the policies he has pushed forward, have had a very positive 
impact on our community.  He has been a real advocate for CVE and 
helped foster the initiation and adoption of CVE by vendors. I am here 
as a direct result of Alan’s support and actions so many years ago.  

Thank you Alan from the bottom of my heart!

    Thank you for your vision and advocacy for CVE throughout the

in promoting CVE in the community has been vital in its adoption. 
    We will remove you from the CVE Board list and from related e-mail 
lists as you have requested.

    Please do take me off the list. I have not kept up the level of 
expertise to be substantively helpful.
    But Brian, I think that because I was the convener for the 
origination of the project, the MITRE folks are probably just being 
kind rather than careless. 
    The work you are like doing is important, and I'm sorry I've been a

and cannot find a single time he has posted to the list, at all, in any 
fashion. This includes not voting on the big ID Syntax change in 2012 -
